But I don't wanna!

The rumors are true. I'm about to lose my office. We all are. In an effort to save money (squeezing 3 1/2 floors of employees into 3 floors of space) and to be cutting edge (open work areas are thought to be "edgy" and "buzzy" and "collaborative"), we're all going into cubes.

I alternate between thinking it's really not that big a deal, that I'm being childish, and being sad for my plant and how he'll suffer with a dearth of direct sun, and how I'll suffer my own lack of the privacy I need to write … and maybe this just may be another kick in the pants that encourages me to switch jobs.

Cubs win! Cubs win!

A two-run single in the bottom of the 9th! Against the Cardinals, no less! And I missed it. I closed my eyes for a moment after work and woke up after midnight.

So far this season has been a challenging one. Maybe my NOT watching it live is really the secret to enjoy it.
